Skyblock has one main purpose: allow the player to do as much as possible with as little resources as possible. In making this map, I did just that, with a few little bonuses. This map is an edit to the original skyblock by noobcrew, but has a few things added into it to expand your possibilities while playing on the direwolf20 modpack. I would make a version for ultimate, but to be honest, I have no clue what I am doing in regards to gregtech, so I usually just leave it alone. Anyways, I made the map so that you can get almost anything inside of skyblock, without deviating too far from the original. My main goal was to not have any sort of shop anywhere in the map. The only two villagers are spawned in with eggs, and have regularly available trades. I also did not start you off with a philosopher's stone, a minium stone, or a tome of alkahestry, like most others seem to do. I actually kept the original skyblock(with a bed to avoid respawning into the Void), the sand island, and the nether island is almost exactly the same, it's just expanded a bit because OCD. I did add an island in the real world and in the Nether, just so you have a few things to get started. YOU MUST HAVE RELIQUARY ENABLED TO PLAY THE MAP AS INTENDED! New to version 1.2: Custome crafting using the Custom Crafting Pouch. I am only using this for items that I would like for the player to be able to get, but is impossible to make infinite. The only two recipes are for nikolite and quartz. The actual recipes are in the recipe book ingame. I also made the entire map a forest biome. My only rules are: do not go into any dimensions added by mods, and do not go to the Mainland. I won't stop you from visiting the twilight forest, but if you start building there and quarrying there, is sort of ruins the point of the map. Spoiler: tips & tricks The apiary hut has a lot of key resources that are rather difficult to obtain otherwise, so use them very wisely. pigmen drop gold and minium shards! If you have enough villagers, then IRON golems spawn. Zombies also have a small chance to drop iron when killed. redstone will be very tight until you can get your hands on an alkahest or have a steady source of EU and a mass fabricator. I would suggest getting some excited bees. (valiant cultivated) read the book in the Nether and take its advice to heart. For more info on the subject, click here. If the dragon blows up the special block in the End (there will be an empty hole in the wall) then Yell "Retired Bridges" (;P) In the beginning, food will be scarce, so build out early. You start out will full saturation, but it won't last forever. thaumcraft has transmutation. Need rubber? kill slimes. Queen complaining about hostile environment? Get an acclimatiser! Feel free to suggest more! Spoiler: screenies! Spawn Island (notice the pure node of about 100 vis) Desert Island Portal Island Apiarist's Island Nether Island The texture pack is familiar yet different and is available in the FTB launcher under texture packs.
